Disneyland's Main Street U.S.A. is where the parade began back in 1972. It astonished the young and old all down Main Street until 1996. After a short hiatus, the parade was re-named Disney's Electrical Parade and debuted in Disney California Adventure in 2001. It continued to run at Disney California Adventure Park as the nightly entertainment until 2010 when it made the move to the East Coast.
The parade was once again named the Main Street Electrical Parade and ran nightly (sometimes multiple times) at Disney's Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort. It continued wowing Disney World guests until October 9, 2016. No matter where the parade ran, it always reminded guests of the true magic of Disney.
If you haven't seen the parade, or you want to relive the last time you did, here's a quick video of the parade as it passes through Main Street in Disney's Magic Kingdom:
